A Note From Kent

Manitou Canyon by William Kent Krueger

After a two-year absence, Cork O’Connor is back, and in a big way, in Manitou Canyon. Asked to find a man who has vanished without a trace in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Cork embarks on the hopeless mission, only to vanish in that vast wilderness himself. It falls to his family to unravel the mystery at the heart of these two disappearances. Although they don’t realize it, the fate of Cork and hundreds of innocent people hang in the balance.

I’m really pleased with this fifteenth Cork O’Connor novel, which I believe is one of the most suspenseful in the series. Here’s what reviewers have said:

Minneapolis Star-Tribune: “Krueger has crafted a gripping thriller… steeped in the mythology of American Indian tribes of Minnesota.”

Booklist: “…a first-rate addition to this series.”

Deadly Pleasures: “…another excellent entry in this award-winning series and should not be missed.”

St. Paul Pioneer Press: “As usual, Krueger keeps the tension high.”

Bookreporter.com: “…a remarkable tale, even considering Krueger’s already demonstrably high standards… The characters, story and plot will haunt you long after you’ve read the last page, but it’s Krueger’s strong and sure descriptive prose that lingers the longest.”

Book Spy: “Krueger might be the best thriller author not named Daniel Silva.”

Although I’ll be touring for many weeks, I’m hard at work on #16 in the series, Sulfur Springs. Stay tuned and I promise to keep you updated.
